Home Remedy for Yeast Infection Using Yeast Infection No More

Updated on February 5, 2010

The majority of women are affected at some point in their lives with a vaginal yeast infection. Although there are cases when men can get them too the problem is still most commonly seen occurring with females.

However a man may get an irritation if he has intercourse with a woman who has an infection caused by Candida Albicans which is the scientific term for this fungus. Many people are unaware that Candida organisms can produce as many as 75 different types of toxins that attack the body's organs and internal systems.

Yeast is a fungal organism that grows naturally on the body and it is found on the skin and in the vaginal area. The body has a natural system of checks and balances that limits the number of yeast colonies, but there are times that the yeast can multiply unchecked and this is when a yeast infection can occur.

There are many different reasons that a woman can get a yeast infection. It is quite common to get these types of infections if someone uses oral contraceptives or takes antibiotics. There are also some other medications that can cause these infections, such as cortisone related medications and even chemotherapy treatments can lead to yeast infections. There is also evidence that seems to support the suggestion that yeast infections are the result of a person's daily diet.

The biggest symptom of yeast infections is the itching and burning that goes along with them. In addition, there will usually be a discharge that looks somewhat like cottage cheese, and there may even be pain while a person is urinating. In some women, yeast infections just keep returning time and again. It's not just these symptoms that are a problem however, because yeast infections can also cause GI disturbances, allergies, bloating, fatigue and mood swings.

The typical treatments for yeast infections involve a topical product that kills the organisms. These treatments involve antifungal medications that are placed in and around the vagina, although there are some drugs that can be taken orally.

Some women would rather search for a yeast infection home remedy when they have a yeast infection instead of taking a commercially prepared formula. This is because some strong medications can worsen the problem with yeast and there are also a number of side effects to consider whenever you use these types of pharmaceutical products.

One home yeast infection remedy that is highly touted is the consumption of garlic. In addition to this home remedy vinegar is another natural solution proposed for individuals who are suffering from infections.

There have also been studies in recent years on the use of probiotics, which are 'friendly' bacteria that help to stop the growth of the yeast infection. Some probiotic yogurts are now promoting their "body friendly" purpose. Another product that is natural and safe to use are suppositories that contain an antifungal agent known as boric acid.

Finally, there is tea tree oil which can also be used as a natural solution to yeast infections. This home treatment is applied directly to the vaginal area after the oil has been diluted. However, before using any home remedy solution, it is wise to check with a doctor first.
